This image released by the British Museum in London, England, Thursday, May. 19, 2005, shows a hoax cave painting of a primitive man pushing a supermarket trolley. The work was on display in the museum after being planted by an anonymous “art terrorist” named ‘Banksy’. Museum staff were alerted on Wednesday after he put a message on his website, saying that the 10in by 6in rock “had remained in the collection for quite some time”. This is not the first time Banksy has stuck fake objects to gallery walls and waited to see how long it takes before curators notice. (AP Photo/British Museum/HO)
